[mrtg] Issues with RRDtool and MRTG on Windows 2000

Hello all,

I currently have MRTG installed and working fine on a windows 2000 server

I am wanting to go to the RRDtool to save some process time.

My problem is this, when I add the following lines to a test config file
(based on one that already works in MRTG):

WorkDir: d:\rrdtool\www\
LogFormat: rrdtool
PathAdd: d:\rrdtool\bin
LibAdd: d:\rrdtool\perlshared
LogDir: d:\rrdtool\log

and then call MRTG, I get the following error:

D:\>perl mrtg test.cfg
'-' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program
or batch file.
ERROR: Cannot update d:\rrdtool\www\test_1.rrd with
'1025708956:3110459986:4211181129' opening 'd:\rrdtool\www\test_1.rrd': No
such file or directory

When I remove the RRDTool settings from the same test config file, MRTG runs
any complaints. So I know that MRTG can find the directories etc.

I can't figure out where the '-' is coming from in the error. I know it is
not from the config file, and I looked in the MRTG perl script, but didn't
see anything out of the ordinary.

I have MRTG-2.9.18, and RRD 1.0.38 installed along with ActivePerl
. so everything is pretty recent.

I know that RRDtool executable is working as I followed the tutorial
examples and everything was OK.

Any help would be appreciated.
